Hello sweet friends !
After watching Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding, now the Duke and Duchess of Sussex... I thought so much of 'tea time' imagining Meghan will be having lots of tea time at Buckingham palace. Therefore, I created a table for afternoon "tea for two" and invited Mr. Living; he likes Napoleons, so I served him a piece.
I used my "Johnson' Bros." teacups and tea-set. The cake plates are "Old England." I have a complete set for twelve place settings, plus a big and small bowl and platter I'm using here with the sweets.
I say 'Indoor garden' because I live in a penthouse apartment, therefore, I have some indoor plants that I love taking care of and in the kitchen I have flower pots too, therefore, I've set my tea table at our breakfast room where all the greenery is.
Someday I will go to the garden by the pool that our condo has; as of now, May is such a rainy month.
With that said... please sit down and enjoy a cup or more of some delicious tea and pastries.
|My afternoon tea setting is done on top of our round antique French breakfast room table. Hubby and I will be indulging on some sweets, for a change, as he loves 'Napoleon' pastries.|
|As you can see my indoor plants are in the background of this setting and this is why I call it my "indoor garden."|
|I placed some pretty pink roses inside the Johnson Bros. teapot and teacup.|
|Occupying centerstage is my lovely 'Meissen' bowl with the grapes with three girls playing 'hide and seek.'|
|Tea with Napoleons... how greater can it get ?|
|The tall floral tin contains 'English' biscuits.|
|This was one big Napoleon and I cut it in half for each, so this way we can have the other sweets too. (wink)|
|I found this pretty porcelain tray for $8 a few years ago. Don't you love the pink roses in it too? |
It also has some writing where it talks about love...cute!
